    Found for 49 cents in the Sullivan Goodwill: A minty Mr. Mxyptlk

    Not the smirky one, alas...but I just snagged him in the store. Very odd and no signs of other Megos. I will try and take a pic. I already have both versions of Mxy so I may do something with him here to share the good fortune.

    Just a reminder those cool Goodwill finds are out there. Wasn't a RM Batman, of course...but still cool.

The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as anger, attachment, fear and suspicion, while love and compassion and a sense of universal responsibility are the sources of peace and happiness.” - The Dalai Lama

          Wow! That is cool. Congrats on the find.

          I've bid on a few lately and come up empty. Maybe I need to check out my local goodwill : )

                Hey Cool News VooDoo
                Once in a Blue moon you find something like that and it powers up your week. I made my monthly rounds of Salvation Army stores this week. As I headed out. I chanted. "Man I hope I find another AJ or mego." I should have been more specific. As I found a Playing Mantis Action Jackson in swimsuit only

                    Well, I've been wanting to replace the one I had as a child but still waiting for an ebay cheapy (deal) so I'll double your investment and give you a WHOLE DOLLAR for him!
                    Just think...you can get TWO more Megos for that crispy green dollar.

                          Think B.A. Where did you hide the Megos?
